    Nylon and or other strap options for a GW7900B-1?

    Hello WUS, I am new to this forum but certainly not new to watches (mechanical watches have been an interest for the last 20 years).
    I decided I 'needed' a new do anything/anywhere watch so after a little looking I just ordered a GW7900B-1. Ideally I would like to change the strap to a rugged nylon strap preferably w/ velcro. After some research I'm a little confused if it's even possible to fit any other strap other on this watch other than the plastic resin strap the watch comes with - is this the case? If there is a way to swap out the strap for other options, I would very much appreciate some insight and expertise concerning what my options are and where to purchase.
    Thank you for any and all help,
    Paul

    Hi Paul and welcome... I am not the expert on this as others are on here but here----

    Bands and Strap Adapters - G-Shock Wiki | casio watch resources

    seems only the older classic models are able to be modified ---- i tried and had issues trying to use the casio adapters (see the band or strap adapters in the link --u can buy for 12 bux the adapters) with my 9100 gulfman model

    but anything can be modified--see another link in there for a modified watch using a dremel ---

    I broke down bought a classic 6900 so the adapters should fit much easier-- love the zulu straps and bought one for my traserand 2 24 MM for my g shocks


    g luck and maybe a lucky hit on here if anyone did a 7900 modification
